A Kent Police dog helped detain two people who are suspected to have robbed a man inside a Canterbury home.

On Wednesday 6 January 2021, at around 10pm, two people are reported to have broken into a property in Military Road, threatened the occupant and demanded money.

The victim, who is in his late 60s, handed over what cash he had and the suspects, a man and a woman, left the address.

Further money was then withdrawn by using the victim’s bank card at two nearby cash machines.

Officers from the Dog Section carried out a search of the area with Police Dog Bo, who helped locate two people that matched the description of the offenders.


A 42-year-old man and an 51-year-old woman from Canterbury were arrested on suspicion of robbery and have since been released on bail until 28 January 2021.

Anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in relation to this incident or has information is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/2971/21.
